Bible Reading Coach, Week 20 (2 Chronicles 13–36) A Great Nation Collapses

What causes the collapse of a great nation and people? That's what we see in this week's reading, but through the lens of hope.

This week we’ll finish up the retelling of Israel’s history from its height to its collapse. As we start, they’ve been torn into two nations, Israel (North) and Judah (South).

Unlike how the story was told in 1 & 2 Kings, the Chronicles focus almost exclusively on Judah, their series of good and bad kings, and a few moments of hopefulness.

By the end, Israel and Judah have both lost their kingdoms, the people are exiled to Babylon, and soon the stage will be set for the eventual rebuilding under Ezra and Nehemiah.

The Bible Reading Coach podcast is designed to help anyone read through the Bible in a year. In 10-15 minutes each Friday, I’ll introduce you to the passage for the following week, including:

  • What it’s about
  • How to deal with challenging passages
  • How the original readers saw it
  • How it applies today
  • And much more

After listening, take the next week to read the passage on your own. This time you’ll have a clearer understanding of it.
